Toni Braxton to Tour After Decade-long Absence
2/17/2006 2:24 PM PT
Except for Broadway musicals and a few select appearances, Toni Braxton hasn't done many live performances in the past decade. But that's about to change.
The R&B diva is embarking on her first tour in 10 years to support her latest album, "Libra." The tour will kick off March 10 in Atlantic City, N.J., and end July 3 in Houston at the Essence Music Festival.
"I'm thrilled to be going out on the road again," Braxton said Friday in a statement to The Associated Press. "I can't wait to bring not only the hits that people know and love but to share the new music from 'Libra' with the audience."
Braxton, who is best known for hits such as "Breathe Again," "You're Makin' Me High" and "Love Shoulda Brought You Home," has starred on Broadway in "Aida" and "Beauty and the Beast."
